Today many of us are facing Hair problems. Some of the common hair problems include extensive and severe hair loss, premature greying of hair, baldness, alopecia, dandruff, split ends, excessive dryness of hairs. In these complaints hairfall seems a very simple issue but actually for a patient it is a serious issue. Most of us ignore the hairfall when it starts, gradually when it becomes excessive and we see our thick mane going thin, we realise the magnitude of the issue. The fear of going bald then grips us Even premature greying of hairs is observed a lot now a days.
In ayurveda hair is said to be a ‘mala’ (byproduct) of “Asthi Dhatu” (Bones). It is formed as mala when sarbhaga of asthidhatu is formed. Likewise health of hair is dependent on the food we consumed. If the food that we consume is rich in nourishment to “Asthi Dhatu ” and if proper care of hair is taken , then the hair health is good.
In today’s hectic lifestyle, consumption of fast food, bakery products, Chinese food, salty diet, outside food is increased. That’s why the hair problems have tremendously increased. Due to sour salty products , Pitta increases which goes to the hair follicle and thinning of root of hair follicles occurs which enhances the hair fall. If the pitta is increased to a large extend then premature greying takes place and younger person looks aged. The hair fall also increase in anemia and long lasting fevers.
It the food increasing kapha dosha is taken in excessive the layers of “vikrut kapha” starts to form on the scalp scalp which is called as Dandruff, which also leads to hair fall. When this vikrut kapha get started at the hair root then glands at the base of hair follicle stop working and spots and pitches are formed which we term as Alopecia (Chai).
The treatment is done as per the reason behind the problem of hairfall. Just use of different oils and shampoos doesn’t give result but in contrast hair fall and greying goes on increasing. For this purpose internal (oral) medicines are given which provide nourishments to the Asthi Dhatu. Oils are also important for the application but use of nasya cinstillation of medicinal nasal drop is very beneficial. It strengthens and thickness hair root. Generally shampoos should be avoided. Ritha, shikekai should be used. Hot water shouldn’t be taken on head at the time of bath. Sour, soda products, junk food should be avoided and proper treatment under the guidance of expert doctor should be taken at proper time so that there will not be baldness and premature greying in early age
All things in the universe (both living and non-living) are combined together in Ayurveda.
